Big on features, not on price.
An affordable laptop with up to 4th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, Windows 8.1, a 15.6" display and a 10-key number pad, all in a design that's 21% thinner than previous generations. Add an optional touch screen.
The Inspiron 15 features 3rd Gen Intel® Core™ processors in a sleek design that’s 21 percent thinner than the 2011 model. So you get all the performance you need, with a little more room in your bag for the other things that matter.
One thing at a time? No way. With powerful Intel® Core™ processors and Windows 8 apps for social media, news and more, you can turn around tasks in a flash, no matter where you are.
Watch it your way
Pack hours of TV shows on the Inspiron 15’s spacious hard drive or pop a movie in the DVD-RW drive. Either way, you’ll get lost in the 15.6" HD Truelife display. At home, connect to an HDMI™-capable TV or monitor for an even bigger view.

Designed for the real world — because that's where life happens.
We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test every Inspiron laptop for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.
• Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65°C/149°F.
• Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
• Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
• Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes with no problems.
• Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting every Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
• Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
